Bicycle Traffic School (BTS) is for cyclists that have been given a ticket for a traffic citation while riding a bike. BTS gives cyclists a one-time option of attending a two-hour bicycle safety class for a fee of $35 instead of paying the violation fine. A court order to attend BTS must be granted by the Traffic Court Judge.
In order to participate in BTS you must:
- Appear in traffic court on your scheduled court date and ask the judge for a court order to attend Bicycle Traffic School.
- Obtain a BTS registration form from the court clerk.
- Follow the instructions on the form for paying the $35 fee.
- Register for a class within 30 days of your court referral date.
